CHILDREN NEED FOOD-NOT ALCOHOL How careless it is to accept, alcoholic, medicine for children when ..everybody knows., that their whole- health and growth "depends upbn\conrect noarfarlillieiff. If your children are pale,.listless;- underweight or puny, they" absolutely need .the special, concentrated food that only gives, to improve their nutrition and repair waste'caused by youthful activity.

" · luff neHsvilie chapter as her "pet", with which she would very much dislike to part. J. . Angell saw some advantages in a consolidation plan- but in view of tbe attitude expressed by the members who had cast their ballots and otherwise made known their sentiments he thought that nothing should be done other than to confirm the action taken by the individual members. J. Fred Kurtz, chairman of the Con- ncllsvine chapter, drew attention to the fact that the executive board occupies very much tbe same relation to the cbaptor that a. board of directors does to the stockholders of a corporation.' While he felt that a consolidation was in the best interests of · the Red Cross as a national organiza- ! Uon, he did aot feel that the personal! views of himself or any other member of the committee should induce f.he '·· committee to take action in opposition '. to the views of the individual mem- ' hers. They had in effect made a ' recommendation that the identity of I ConnellsviUe's chapter be preserved.; hence the committee could do no ler.s ; than aprove that recommendation. ! Mrs. TV 1 . 0.
